I don’t know about you, but I’ve been on the hunt for a good Cheese Danish.
And why is that? Well, because one of my favorite treats — the Biggest Cheese Danish You Ever Did See — may soon be losing its home, and I don’t know what’s going to become of it. You see, it’s located at one place, and one place only… the Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Trouble is, that location is closing to make way for construction of the new lands coming to the Studios: Toy Story and Star Wars. (While the spot may have a brief respite, we can’t believe it’s long for this “World” in its current state.)
While the other signature snack at Writer’s Stop — the Carrot Cake Cookie — is (and hopefully will remain) available at Sweet Spells, I know of no other home for the monster-sized Cheese (not to mention Apple and Cherry) Danish you can find there.
So, yeah… I’m on a hunt. And it’s led me to another park entirely: Magic Kingdom.
Welcome back to the Cheshire Cafe in Fantasyland.
You remember Cheshire Cafe, right? It was a pretty low-key locale until the arrival of Gourmet Cake Cups — a heavenly cupcake-meets-parfait-meets-mountain-of-frosting that — for reasons we’ll never understand — is no longer served here.
These days it still serves its old standbys like muffins, Frozen Lemonade Slushes, and… well, whaddya know? A Cheese Danish.
I know — it doesn’t sound all that exciting. But I’m on a mission here, folks. So let’s see how this one stacks up!
Honestly, at first glance it almost resembles a flat cinnamon roll more than a Cheese Danish.
But it does have its pros: like my beloved Cheese Danish at Writer’s Stop, this one is twisted with cinnamon and sugar between the layers. The pastry is soft and buttery. And it gets a point or two for the generous icing drizzle.
But the heavy vanilla cream cheese center sinks to the bottom of the snack, and while it’s that same delicious sweet and cheesy mixture, there just isn’t as much as I wish there was. Plus, it’s on the smaller size, making it far less… you know, epic.
It’ll do for a quick morning munch at Magic Kingdom, but for the time being, my quest is still very much on. If you have a favorite cheese danish in Disney World, let me know in the comments below!
